Supporting mental health services in the Territory​

NTMHC is the peak body for community managed mental health services across the Northern Territory. 

Our vision for the Northern Territory

NTMHC strives to promote awareness and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness in the Northern Territory and to contribute to the improvement of the mental health and wellbeing of all Territorians. 

Our vision is that all Territorians have the opportunity for the best possible mental health and wellbeing.

What we do

We work in collaboration with a wide network of organisations, people with lived experience, their families and supporters across the NT.  We provide advice to governments and offer policy input as well as advocacy on behalf of member organisations for stronger NT mental health service provision.

The Coalition is a member of both Mental Health Australia (MHA) and Community Mental Health Australia (CMHA). We work at a national and local level to improve the mental health and wellbeing of all Territorians.

Each year the Coalition supports events for Mental Health Week, including the launch, administering the website and online calendar, organising the community Mental Health Awards and managing the mini-grants program.
